Fortnite players have long been wanting to see a ranked mode added to the game and it looks like they might get their wish if a new leak ends up coming to fruition.

A rumor floating around the internets suggest that Fortnite might adopt a new ranking system in Season 7 that could serve to bridge the gap between the casual and competitive communities.

The rumor, posted by Twitter user ‘GuzzlingS,’ was first spotted in the replies to a tweet from Team Liquid’s Ryan ‘Chap’ Chaplo.

According to the Tweet, Epic Games is going to introduce casual and ranked playlists, with the latter adhering to the Winter Royale’s score system and rule set

One thing to note in the rumor is that there will be a system in place to take points away from players for leaving games unfinished. 

While this isn’t something that has been seen in any of Fortnite’s in-game tournaments thus far, the concept of chipping away at a player’s rank for disconnects isn’t anything new to online competitive games.

The rumor touched on the possibility of three rank resets throughout Season 7 to help to keep players engaged and willing to grind for rewards at the time of resets.

Rewards would range from in-game cosmetic items to the top 1% of the leaderboard to V-bucks for the top 5%.

Epic GamesWinter is coming with a whole lot of rumored twists for players.

Finally, the rumor suggests that an end-of-season tournament will be coming for players who acquire a certain amount of points at the end of any one of the sessions. 

The tourney would be smaller than those big events Epic Games has planned, but still something to compete for, especially for smaller, amateur players.

Epic Games has been trying to find a way to deliver satisfying competitions for their battle royale game, while also opening the tournaments to as many players as possible. So even if the rumors don’t carry any weight, ideas are sure to be floating around within Epic Games to improve the popular battle royale’s competitive scene.

One of the faces of PlayStation has arrived in Fortnite Season 5 as the God of War himself now has his very own skin. Here’s how you can grab the new Kratos reward for yourself.

Seemingly out of nowhere, some of the biggest leaks in Fortnite history appeared online over the past few days. Both Sony and Microsoft are getting their own items in Epic’s popular battle royale title. While Master Chief will seemingly be available soon, Kratos is the standout for now.

After a critically-acclaimed revamp of the franchise in 2018, the PlayStation nation is anxiously awaiting any new information surrounding the 2021 follow-up. Before we get there, however, there are a few new goodies to hold the community over in Fortnite.

You can now drop into Fortnite’s Season 5 update with everyone’s favorite dad. Not only that, but you can even wield his Leviathan Axe in battle, along with a few other iconic items. Here’s how you can grab them all.

As the first iconic character in a new ‘Gaming Legends’ series in Fortnite, Kratos is making a huge impact. The Oathbreaker set contains more than just his standard skin. You’ll also be able to use the Leviathan Axe to chop down materials, drop into battle with the Guardian Shield Glider, and bring Mimir with you as Back Bling.

Two subtle rewards are also crammed into the set as well. Just wielding the all-powerful Axe gives you access to an exclusive emote in-game. Additionally, for those on PlayStation 5, there’s another full skin to unlock.

Just by playing a single game with the standard Kratos skin, you’ll unlock an Armored Kratos Style cosmetic fit with stunning golden armor.

All of these new rewards are available to purchase in the Item Shop. A full bundle is available, priced at 2200 V-Bucks. Though you can also buy a few individual items. Kratos alone will run you 1,500 V-Bucks. The Axe is up for grabs at 1,000 V-Bucks. While the Glider is also available as a separate piece for 800 V-Bucks.

Season 5 has only just kicked off in Fortnite. Yet we’ve already got both Star Wars and now God of War characters running around the map. It’s only a matter of time before the next major crossover.

We already know Master Chief is on the way thanks to some early leaks. But the door is now wide open for future additions.
